Eddie's call

Thursday 21 February 2002

Eddie Lewis has been handed an international recall and will represent the United States in matches against Ecuador and Honduras next month.

The 27-year-old, who has not featured for Fulham all season, will link up with his US team-mates early next week ahead of their matches against Honduras in Seattle, Washington, on March 2 and Ecuador in Birmingham, Alabama, on March 10.

The Californian has been capped 34 times by the United States and recently appeared for them in their friendly with Italy on February 13.

The call-up means he is likely to miss the reserve clash with Derby County on March 7.
